what is the tip to get all the paint in the small crease on the back of the lights?

I did this last night and there are several areas that are still clear. its like the paint cannot get into these areas...

Couple things...

Thanks Mr. Green for this how to.

I did mine with flat black.

To get into all the cracks I used a syringe from my kids medicine. I sucked out the touch up paint and squirted it into the crack and let it run down. Then after a couple times of doing that, I taped off the entire lights and sprayed in black spray paint to hit all the areas that didn't get it the first time.

the syringe got to the bottom of the crease and the spray hit all the other areas.

Made a huge difference Josh! I used Toyota black metallic gloss from pepboys. Couldn't find FORD black for some reason
